Among the other events going on at this week's Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, is a place where you can do a little performing of your own. In the merchandise tent on “Jazz” (Gibbs) Street, is something called the Lip Sync Challenge, to benefit the organization AutismUp.

Katrina Busch is a spokesperson for the event, and she says it allows anyone to go before a video camera, and lip sync to one of the available songs.

 "We videotape it, we upload it to the Autism Up YouTube channel and then we ask people to go there and share it with their friends , and Twitter or Facebook , anywhere that they want, to really increase the exposure and get other people out here to do the challenge."
